Li (Administrator) they/them

Li (they/them) is currently a masters of arts student in urban planning & policy at Tufts University. They have a background and interest in grassroots community organizing and issues of displacement and community control of land and affordable housing. They are working on their homesteading skills and dream of owning collective land with QTBIPOC (queer and trans black, indigenous, and people of color) fam and building our own affordable communities and creating the material means for futures where we can thrive.

Li is always excited by organizations and peoples trying to provide resources for QTBIPOC folks who are extremely marginalized in the conventional fundraising processes. They are always working on expanding their financial planning skills and hope to help QTBIPOC folks plan their personal finances, start businesses, and figure out how to pool collective resources to invest in our own community development and wealth building.
